Mobilities

The CCIG research programme on 'Mobilities' includes research and publications on the context, processes and impacts of human migrations, past and present.

The inter-disciplinary programme on Mobilities includes research and publications on the context, processes and impacts of human migrations, past and present, with reference to issues of economic organisation, social reproduction and transformation, and socio-cultural mobility.

The programme explores how migration processes, and their attendant and consequent mobilities, throw into relief concepts of participation, governance, citizenship, development and the nation, and raise issues of entitlement, legitimacy and identity. The programme focuses on these issues in EU contexts, as well as in wider international and global contexts.
